Health Warrior, I don’t strain mine per se,  but several members do.   Any liquid that is in my jars I use as starter for upcoming batches.

How do I know if my yogurt turned out well? I just made it for the first time and followed your video, it looks curdy. Is that ok? Should I just separate the whey and then mix it? I wish I could send you a pic...

Bob Niland - your comment "If it otherwise passes the checklist, the curds are fine for consumption" was interesting. What checklist are you referring to? I’m not sure if I should be eating my less tasty tangy, curdy yogurt. Thank you

If you want a thicker yoghurt go with with a 45% fat or so cream, there will be minimal whey and you will have a very creamy and delicious end product.

I agree with Eamo. My sister-in-law has made the yogurt with skim milk and got cottage cheese.

HeartHawk, thank you for this very useful video. 
I have a question about the water bath. Is the water cold from the tap, or do you heat it prior to putting it in the basin, and if so, at what temperature?

I just use it right from the tap - no heating or worry about the temp.

Thank you very much Bob. I am very new to this, still trying to figure out how to navigate this very rich forum/website. I really appreciate your numerous, very informative, and often tongue-in-cheek (an all-time winner in my book ;-) ) posts.

Is there a recipe for making yogurt from Sugar Shift tablets somewhere?  I have yet to find it.  If not, how many capsules does one put in the slurry, and then what is the time and temp for fermentation?  Thank you!

It depends on which version of sugar shift you are using.   The capsule needs inulin.  I believe their new powdered version,  in a jar,  doesn’t need it (but I haven’t purchased that to read the instructions).

Hi all! About freezing some of the whey from the first batch…  is it not recommended to just freeze some yogurt from a subsequent batch?

Great, I’ll keep that in mind for future starters!  I hadn’t thought of freezing the whey on my first sibo batch so I’m glad it’s not too late to save it up for when I want to try some others. Thank you!
